hi all

i'm using an external hard drive on which i store all my downloads. tonight my download folder simply vanished. the space allocated to the download folder is still showing as taken up so it must be there somewhere. i'm currently searching the drive for the folder but does anyone know what might have happened? it just happened really fast - one minute there, the next minute gone. also, are there any disk recovery processes i can use on an external hard drive?

okay, that was strange. i found my download folder - it was where it normally is but its folder options had been changed to 'hidden'. now i certainly didn't do it and the computer is spyware / virus-free. very odd indeed...i wonder if my laptop is haunted?

Now that IS peculiar. I've never heard of any process that would have changed a folder of your own stuff to "hidden" without your telling it to. Still, glad it seems to be ok!
